The Warriors, surprisingly a game up on the St. Louis Hawks in the NBA's Western Division playoffs, entertain the Hawks In Oakland. The Lakers, not surprisingly ahead of the Chicago Bulls 2-1 in the West's other playoff, meet the Bulls in Chicago. The Muskies can end their series with Kentucky in the ABA's Eastern Division with another victory. Minnesota is ahead 2*1 and the semifinals in the ABA are best-of-5. In the NBA, it'sbest-of-7. In the only pro basketball playoff action Thursday night, the Boston Celtics evened their series with the Detroit Pistons at two games each by winning 135-110 at Detroit. The Warriors' lead over the Hawks Is even more surprising for the fact that it was gained without the services of Nate Thurmond, the big center who Is out with Injuries, and several other key players. Paul Silas of the Hawks, admitting the Warriors are "better than we expected," says he is "confident the Hawks will come back." St. Louis beat San Francisco In seven of their eight meetings during the regular season. Bill Russell sparked a third- quarter rally, bringing the Celtics past the Pistons, who were threatening to continue their newly found mastery over Boston.

Rojas Rallies for Victory Over Higgins By BOB MYERS Associated Press Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) - California's Raul Rojas rallied in two violent rounds, the 12th and 15th, and won a unanimous decision over Enrique Higgins of Colombia Thursday night to win the World Boxing Association featherweight championship. Rojas, 126, San Pedro, Calif., had Higgins, 125V 2 .Bogota, Colombia, on the verge of a knockout in the two crucial rounds before a capacity crowd of 10,400 at the Olympic Auditorium—a crowd which paid $64,381. The decision was widely acclaimed by the partisan Rojas following but there were those who felt that Higgins, a master at jabbing and boxing had earned the decision. While the WBA, which includes California, sanctioned the fight, to fill the vacancy caused when Mexico's Vicente Saldlvar retired last October, there are other areas In the world which did not extend the recognition. Referee Dick Young scored it 11-6, judge John Thomas had It 10-5 and judge George Latka scored 10-6, California's scoring is one or more points to the winner of a round, none for the loser and none for an even round, The Associated Press scored it 8-6 for Higgins, The victory was the 34th for Rojas, His only defeat was a 15- round knockout by Saldlvar in los Angeles, May 7, 1965, It was the third defeat In 33 fights for Higgins, By MH (UID 5TM, f tWH If Ofllit Sanders Is Heading the Field PRESS Basketball WE ASSOCIAftt) NBA SEMIFINALS Eastern Division Boston 135, Detroit 110, best- b'M series lied 2*2, Tray's Games WesternDivlsion St Louis vs. Sin Prancisco at Oakland, San Pranclseo leads best-of-7 series M.
